5 Trader Joe’s Favorites

In Food, Uncategorized on March 4, 2010 at 3:32 pm

Just Mango Slices.

Unsweetened, unsulfered. I’ve yet to open a bag without finishing it.  I’m on my third bag this week.

Almondina Cookies.

My brilliant sister-in-law serves these as crackers with soft cheeses.  Sublime.

Chocolate-covered Pomegranate Seeds.

After the initial shock that the seeds were dried (I know, duh! but for some reason I imagined them plump and juicy), I really dig these tangy little buggers now.  Good thing because the hoarder in me came home with three boxes.

Colossal Cooked Shrimp.

They are not joking when they say colossal.  These are big, bad shrimp.  Firm, without any floppy sogginess.

Pop-Up Sponges.

Just like the bath toys, these puff right up when wet.  100% biodegradable.  To disinfect, microwave damp for 45 seconds.

What are you loving from TJ’s right now?

  1. I discovered the mangoes in California at my sister’s house and cannot stop eating them! So tasty!!

  2. I totally thought the pomegranate seeds would be juicy as well! Picked them up for a lululemon athletica Crossfit (I was trying to get at least 1 member to break their Paleo or Zone diet) party and was almost disappointed but rather surprised.

  3. Found my way to TJs yesterday, but couldn’t find the mango slices. Did come home with the shrimp, seeds and almondina along with a pantry’s worth of staples. They had baked sea salt and vinegar potato chips, which were wonderful. It’s going to be a tasty week!

  4. […] Trader Joe’s Pop-Up Sponge, available in Trader Joe’s stores […]

  5. […] I used frozen shrimp from Trader Joe’s.  If you use fresh, give them 2-3 minutes to cook […]
